What are Allied Health programs?

Allied health programs are educational programs that prepare individuals for careers in the healthcare field outside of Medicine, Nursing, Optometry and Dentistry

Allied Health professions

Professions within the Allied Health community include: 

  • Orthoptists
  • Osteopaths
  • Paramedics
  • Physiotherapists
  • Prosthetists and orthotists
  • Radiographers
  • Speech and language therapists

Allied health programs typically include a combination of classroom instruction, laboratory training, and supervised clinical experiences to prepare students for their specific roles in the healthcare field.

These programs focus on a wide range of health-related disciplines and professions that support and complement the work of physicians and other primary healthcare providers. They play a crucial role in delivering patient care, conducting diagnostic tests, providing therapy and rehabilitation services, and managing healthcare information.

Studying Allied Health Programs in the UK

Many Canadian students find their options limited within Canada for Allied Health programs as typically there are not enough places to match the demand and as a result, they are some of the most competitive programs to gain entry to. It is therefore a benefit to Canadians to know that they have the option to study their desired program in the UK.

It should also be noted that, unlike Canada, the UK offers the chance to study programs such as Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy straight out of high school, meaning that they do not have to first complete an undergraduate degree in a related discipline in order to qualify for these programs.
